<< This is my problem: I am _ assuming_ that Rosala is an actual sister
because her name is MARKOWITZ, she must have been married or she would not
have had children. If she was a sister-in-law to the MARKOWITZ brothers, I
would think they would refer to the heirs as "the children of my deceased
brother so-and so. >>

I would guess that the MARKOWITZ married sister's maiden name and married
name were both Markowitz. She may have married a Markowitz cousin-that was
common. I would also guess that the husband died long before the will so
that the husband was not named but the wife and the kids.

Of course, anything is possible in genealogy.
